2022 Elora Fergus Arts Council Survey

The Elora Fergus Arts Council is conducting a survey of artists, arts organizations and creative businesses that contribute to the cultural life of Centre Wellington. We want to know who you are, the challenges you are currently facing and how we can support you. The results will help guide the activities of the Arts Council and provide a framework for discussions when we convene a community Arts Roundtable in Spring 2023.

Please take a minute to complete the survey HERE


Beverley Cairns

Beverley Cairns passed away on Thursday, August 18 at her summer home in Quebec where she became unwell and was taken to hospital. Her daughter Eva was with her.

Beverley leaves an incredible legacy in her commitment to the arts, heritage, and her community.  We mourn the loss of this dear, amazing woman and we also reflect in wonder at all she gave of herself to make our community better in so many ways.

The Elora Fergus Arts Council Board is working with the family to plan the celebration of her fine life.  While the date is not yet set, it will probably be in November, when her family can be here.  We will let everyone know closer to the date.

 Beverley’s career and contributions from 1998 and 2005 are described in her Profile on this our website. We will be adding so much more, as we know her last 17 years were as impactful as her early years.

How fortunate we are to have known her!
